New Revlon Photo Ready Primer And Shadow Review and Swatches!

Revlon has released a new eyeshadow palette collection that I spotted today at my local Walgreens. Each palette comes with 3 eyeshadow shades plus a primer and a glittery top coat. The idea is very similar to the Maybelline Eyestudio Color Explosion Luminizing Eyeshadow Palettes.
The display contains 8 different palettes. What I love most is that they include a "try me" palette so you can sort of get a feel for what the eyeshadows are like. I only bought two out of the eight so that I can give them a try and see how I like them before shelling out too much money. They were $9.99 a piece but Walgreens had a buy one get one half off sale so I got 2 for $15.
The two that I chose were Metropolitan which is a neutral brown based palette. I also chose Pop Art which has a bunch of greens in it. This is what the palettes look like. As you can see they kind of map out for you where the eyeshadow should go. The two pans at the bottom are the primer (bigger pan) and the glittery top coat (small pan). The packaging on these is pretty nice. It is a nice thick plastic so it seems pretty durable. They also come with two sponge applicators.

They also show you on the back the requested places to put the eyeshadow.

The palette above is Metropolitan. It the most neutral palette I saw in the collection. I swatched them over bare skin without primer. The first three swatches are the eyeshadows and the fourth over is the primer, the fifth over is the glitter top coat.

The palette above is Pop Art.

Overall these aren't too bad from first impression. They were much more pigmented than I thought they would be. The apply smoothly and evenly. I like that it gives you different option for looks. I like how it gives you the opportunity to go from day to night just by adding the glitter top coat. I don't know how long the eyeshadows last but I am going to put them to the test and will do a more in depth review. As of now I think that they are going to be worth the money. If you don't like shimmery eyeshadows than these might not be for you. It seemed mostly all the shades in the palettes are shimmer. Thank you for reading.
